The Silverback Fund

Silverback Fund component of the Pitt State Athletics Fund generates annual financial support for all Pittsburg State University student-athletes with a responsibility to facilitate, promote, and enhance academic and athletic experiences. The Silverback Fund, formerly known as the Athletics Annual Fund, is an unique opportunity for Pittsburg State alumni, friends and fans to make a direct and meaningful impact on the academic achievement of our student-athletes. Show your Pittsburg State pride by lifting the burden of academic costs for these outstanding Gorillas and helping them achieve success on the field and in the community.

Annual contributions help provide necessary resources to recruit and retain quality student-athletes in order to maintain the high level of excellence expected in all 12 sports.*

Private Contributions are Vital

No tax dollars are spent on intercollegiate athletics scholarships in the state of Kansas. Therefore, private funding is crucial in maintaining the level of success that Pittsburg State’s athletics programs have enjoyed over the years. The private contributions are vital in preparing Pittsburg State's young men and women to win in the classroom and on the field of competition.
